The campus also houses the Kiran Nadar Museum of Art, sponsored by the Shiv Nadar Foundation - a philanthropic organisation set up by the HCL founder.

The museum, opened in January of this year, holds a collection of work by Indian artists, largely from the post-Independence period.

The campus museum, which features works by Anish Kapoor and FN Souza, is likely to be moved to a larger location in the Noida area next year, with the aim of moving it to a custom-built "iconic structure" in the next five years, according to Shiv Nadar.

The current set-up is phase one of HCL's plan for the campus - a second phase is scheduled for completion next year will add capacity for another 6,500 workers, while a third phase will take the total number of staff at the site to 18,000.

The building work for phase two - which could see leisure facilities such as a basketball or tennis court added to the campus - is pictured above.
